Great River Hospice is sponsoring a workshop to help people cope with loss during the holidays. At this time of year, events that once were anticipated with joy may become painful reminders that loved ones are no longer here to celebrate.

“Turkey, Tinsel and Tears: Coping with Grief at the Holidays” is scheduled at 6:15 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, in the conference room at the Great River Hospice House, 1306 Washington Rd., West Burlington. Everyone is invited to a potluck dinner at 5:30 p.m. The main course, drinks and table service will be provided. Participants are asked to bring a side dish.

The program is for the public, regardless of whether they have used Great River Hospice services. Reservations and attendance at the potluck are not required.

For more information, please call Great River Hospice at (319) 768-3350, (319) 986-6325 or toll-free (877) 404-4766.
